GUCCI-GIRL SURGERY UPDATE!!!!!! 🐶😃 Hi everyone, essay to come but it’s exciting news! 💃 💃💃💃💃💃💃 Gucci-Girl had arthroscopic surgery on both elbows today and the good news is.... drum roll please.... 🥁 Gucci-Girl does NOT have elbow dysplasia!!!!!! 😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀 What GG does have is: Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD) in her shoulder, which was diagnosed through the arthroscopy. So what is dog shoulder OCD?? 🤔 Well I’m glad you asked 🤓 In a nutshell, GG has a painful lesion inbetween the cartilage of her shoulder. These lesions normally show up between ages 4-8 months and can be from genetics in large breeds, lack of nutrition (when Gucci-Girl entered the shelter she was severely emaciated) and/or trauma (she was also reportedly seen being thrown from a car)😞 The cartilage will need to be cut away during keyhole surgery tomorrow and she will still need the same amount of recovery time but... THE GREAT NEWS IS THIS IS COMPLETELY FIXABLE!!!! 😁 unlike elbow dysplasia, where there is lasting after effects and no guarantees. To say I am over the moon is an understatement!!!! 🌙🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩 Thankyou so very, very much to all of you for pulling together to help Gucci-Girl have her surgery 🙏 you truly have ALL contributed to saving this little girls life 🙂🐶💖😘 - - - #guccigirl#gucci#surgery#thankful#excited#relieved#goodnews#essay#happy#ocd#osteochondritisdissecans#dog#rescuedog#shoulderoperation#goodtimes#thankyouuniverse#rescuedogsrule#rescuedogsofig#rescuedogsrock#rescuegram#rescuedismyfavoritebreed#rhodesianridgeback#ridgeback

My hooman sometimes dresses me in Sock Monkey bandanas, but I'm still grateful for her. 🐒 I'm also grateful for the PNW🌲 and how much of it I've gotten to smell. And turkey with sweet potatoes. Squeaky toys. Memory foam. All the people who care about me, here, there and on the couch. And peanut butter. Definitely peanut butter. We wish you a similar embarrassment of riches. ❤🐶❤ #optoutside#mydogismy#rescuedogsrock#pnwisbeautiful#upperleftusa
